The theme is "Contemporary Tax Challenges for African Countries".
The two organisations hope the event will be an opportunity for academics, researchers, tax administrators, students, tax practitioners, consultants and decision-makers on fiscal and tax policy in Africa, to discuss different aspects of national, regional and international tax.
Anyone interested in presenting a paper has until March 31 to submit their abstract to Esther Roman, the conference organiser. The deadline for final submission of full research papers is July 15.
The conference is another example of how the region is focusing more on producing data and evidence-based research to help inform tax adminstrations and build their capacity. The OECD announced last week that nine countries have now joined the Revenue Statistics in Africa project.
